Brief Summary:
  1. Primary Endpoints

    • Biomarker data suggestive of regorafenib-mediated inhibition of the RAS-RAF- MEK-ERK signal transduction pathway,of various tyrosine kinase receptors and/or of angiogenesis.
    • Evaluation of potential relationships between biomarker data and clinical activity.
    • Evaluation of a novel biomarker technology (Prometheus COPIA platform)
  2. Secondary Endpoints

    • Biomarker data suggestive of regorafenib-mediated effects on circulating rare cells.
    • Comparison of tumor genetic profiles obtained using DNA isolated from plasma, tumor biopsies and circulating tumor cells.
    • Patient safety data
    • Pharmacokinetics of regorafenib
    • Changes in tumor metabolic activity as measured by PET CT scan (optional)
